Balloon angioplasty of previously unoperated, “native,” aortic coarctation has been successfully used in neonates and infants younger than 1 year of age.l-14 Symptomatic improvement and pressure gradient reduction after balloon angioplasty14 has been well documented. The high incidence of recoarctation and the potential for development of aneurysms and arterial complieations15-*7 are of concern. We report the feasibility of balloon angioplasty for native coarctation via an umbilical artery… CONTINUE READING
